Hi there! For those of you who have not heard the latest on our current adoption or our Miss Nina...here we go!
|Nina getting ready to go into school!|
Aside from all that, the most baffling thing is how much Nina's personality is changing! After surgery she regressed back to about an 18 month old! After changing up her medicines and her last Veeg something starting happening. I may have mentioned in my last post that I had all the sudden become her new favorite and she was not a fan of Josh, that is slowly starting to level out a little more. She still seems to prefer me, but he is a very close second! She seems to have come full circle to the girl she was when we first adopted her! She is a sweet, lovable, but VERY stubborn girl! If she does not want to do it she has no problem standing her ground! No more chances for the other kids to take a toy and she just takes it like she has been doing since her surgery, now she will yank it right back! When Nina came home she LOVED to dance and sing! Since the surgery, she stopped dancing and did not seem to be able to remember any songs we sang! Now you can just see it all over her face when we play songs she used to love, that she remembers them! She was even humming one the other day out of the blue!! She has even said a few Mandarin phrases she said when we first brought her home, that she has not said in a looong time! And she just started saying a few phrases she could say pre-surgery. The brain is a fascinating thing! Though we see some of the negative orphanage behavior again, which I am not going to lie has been HARD to see again, it is also SO encouraging to know she is coming back to us! We got her far once we had her home and together we can DO IT AGAIN!
